Day Seven

Almost half the world - over three billion people - live on less the $2.50 per day.

At least 80% of humanity lives on less than $10 a day.

More than 80% of the world's population lives in countries where income differentials are widening.

Around 27-28% of all children in developing countries are estimated to be underweight or stunted.

According to UNICEF, 22,000 children die each day due to poverty. And they "die quietly in some of the poorest villages on earth, far removed from the scrutiny and conscience of the world. Being meek and weak in life makes these dying multitudes even more invisible in death."

I'm overwhelmed...
